Illusionistic Grandeur


United States

In the beginning, I had no idea who you were 

You were a mystery that I didn't know existed.

Your spell on me began to grow ever more

And I know I could not resist it.


In the beginning, you were a sweet little thing

A sweet little thing and I wanted more and more.

But now I believe that I was not thinking

And you began to ignore. 


The way you would smile and gaze at me

Would leave my eyes starry and I'd gasp, breathless.

But now I think your thoughts were hungry

And your eyes were just an illusion, a fake test.


In the beginning, I fell for  your flattery

And your unmistakeable charm.

But now I know that was just predatory

And would do nothing but cause harm.


In the beginning, I loved your mindset and thinking

And believed you loved me too, or so I thought

But now I realize that you were just wringing

My fragile, naive little heart of the very last drop.


In the beginning, you were a mystery

And now I see that you exist.

You did nothing but deceive me

And guess what?

I fell for every one of your tricks.
